Anyway I can remove this listing from the system restore list?

Hi everyone, can you help me?

I have a ghost backup showing in my system restore list. It is the one selected in the attached picture. All the associated files for this back up were on an external file and were manually deleted by accident. Is there anyway I can remove this listing from the system restore list? any help will be greatly appreciated.
